This is what the puppy looked like just moments after being pulled from the dumpster fire.
After being rushed to emergency care, the vets shaved his fur to check out the damage to his skin.
The puppy had been doused in an accelerant, proving that the incident was intentional.
Phoenix was burned and abandoned, but also starved. He weighed only half of what a dog his age should weigh.
The most severe burns were on his knees and paws. They had to give Phoenix pain medication and lots of bandages
The vets had trouble keeping some wounds closed, so Phoenix went into surgery for skin grafting.
After living his own personal nightmare, Phoenix could finally relax a little bit.
Phoenix is already looking better! The road to recovery will continue…
And while it may be a long road to recovery, the love and care Phoenix is receiving is sure to get him through it!
Wish Phoenix luck and spread his story by sharing this post. Hopefully they will catch those responsible for this unthinkable act, and Phoenix will rise once again!
